Become a USA Triathlon Official!
Officials are of critical importance at USA Triathlon sanctioned events. Officials uphold and enforce USAT rules and help ensure the safety of participants. You can become a USAT official by participating at one of the many certification clinics held around the country each year.
About the clinics.
There is no charge for attending a USAT officials clinic. You must however, be a current member of USA Triathlon and bring your membership card. You also have the option of joining USA Triathlon at the clinic. Clinics are held in conjunction with a sanctioned event, and will have USA Triathlon officials assigned to marshal the race. The Officials Certification Clinic consists of approximately three hours of classroom lecture and discussion. Each clinic has a limited number of spaces and applicants are urged to contact the clinic instructor to reserve a space early.
Watch & listen to this 10 minute USAT Rules Overview from USAT Commissioner of Officials, Charlie Crawford.
